New York — Tonight show host Jimmy Fallon is on the mend after a hand injury that required minor surgery on Friday.

Fallon tweeted on Friday that he tripped and when he caught his fall his ring caught on the side of a table and "almost ripped my finger off".

"I'm doing well and thanks for good wishes everyone," he tweeted.

According to his rep he is expected to make a full recovery.

He has some built-in recovery time since the show was scheduled to be on hiatus for the next two weeks anyway.

This is not the first time Jimmy has hurt his hand. In 2013 he almost cut off his finger while making salsa.
